It's the same with children. I hesitate when I think of letting my 9 yr old daughter ride her bike to school (her school is in the neighborhood, no major streets or crossings, quite safe area, etc ,etc). I think it has to do (among other things) with media possibly instilling fear? Honest to God, at that age I was exploring way farther and my parents had way less supervision over me (or siblings).

Or maybe I'm just paranoid.
As for the fear of falling...learn to love and cherish the experience. You want it. You need it. You can't wait for the next hit.

Handbooks-They have a lot more info in them, a lot of it 'safety' stuff. My previous bike [1400GTR] the handboook could not be stowed on the bike as there was no suitably sized stowage. But as always, you get questions on facebook and web forums like this where someone asks a question andd the answer is 'read the manual' Some things never change. :002:
